Nour Harkati & Aytma from Tunisia, and Egyptian band Sorour will give a double bill concert at El-Genaina Theatre on 9 November.

Nour Harkati is a Tunisian writer composer and performer, born into a family of classical oriental musicians. He captures new sounds from visits to Berlin, where he follows electronic music into new directions to create music merging between the concrete and the mystical.

Aytma is a group four musicians; drummer Youssef Soltana, bassist Marwen Soltana, pianist Selim Arjoun, and vocalist Hedi Fahem.

Together Harkati and Aytma collaborated on a project titled Helwess, hoping to “broaden the artistic and cultural views, and enhance the musical and acoustic vision of each” according to the concert description.

Sorour Project began as an acoustic fusion band, merging folk with flamenco, blues and jazz, and then later developed it to incorporate electronic music, rock and funk, and now they describe themselves as mixing Oriental and Folk with World Music.

The project is comprised of Alexandrian musicians including founding member and vocalist Mohamed Sorour, Mostafa El-Attar on violin, Mohamed Magdy on lead guitar, Mohamed El-Sayed on the keyboard, Moamen Hassan on bass, Gomaa on percussion and Abdel-Razzeq on the drums, according to the group's Facebook page. 

They released a single, Horoob (Escape), in July 2015 on their Soundcloud account from their hard rock and Sufi fusion EP titled Nabi Daniel. 

Thursday 9 November at 8pm
El-Genaina Theatre, Al-Azhar Park, Salah Salem Road, Cairo
